The Best Early Learning Daycare & Pre-K in West Vancouver.

At CEFA West Vancouver – Park Royal, we are all that and more. Core Education & Fine Arts (CEFA) is an Early Learning Private School with a proprietary and award-winning curriculum designed to educate and develop your whole child—academically, emotionally, physically, and socially so they’re ready for kindergarten—and for life!

Developing a better way of learning

CEFA West Vancouver – Park Royal is Now Open!

CEFA West Vancouver – Park Royal is more than a daycare or traditional childcare centre. CEFA has earned a reputation for developing intellect in the early years, and for providing children with the finest start in education, arts, and the humanities.

CEFA Early Learning opened its first school over 20 years ago in B.C. and has been trusted by parents since. CEFA is now Canada’s leading private school for children ages one to five.

At CEFA Early Learning, children discover how they can contribute to the world as they explore and learn through our enriched curriculum. Core fundamental skills are at the heart of our curriculum, and CEFA students are always learning and playing – not just learning and not just playing.

Our new CEFA location in West Vancouver will be conveniently located in Park Royal North. As part of this community, our purpose will be to make our School an integrated member of the neighbourhood, the entire West Vancouver District, and adjacent communities.

CEFA West Vancouver – Park Royal will have 98 childcare spaces to help address the urgent need for childcare in the District of West Vancouver. Our facilities will consist of over 9,400 square feet of indoor space to accommodate 6 classrooms and over 3,000 square feet of outdoor playground space for the exclusive use of our School.

Our Early Childhood Education curriculum is proprietary and award-winning. We offer enriched programs to students including Fine Arts Programs (Yoga programs, Music programs, Dance classes and Drama). CEFA curriculum also includes Core Education Subjects, including S.T.E.M. classes, Literacy, Reading Programs, Writing Programs and Math classes. Our Teachers have their Early Childhood Education licences as well as specialized CEFA Teacher Training Certification, so our children learn from the very best. We provide a healthy and nurturing environment for your child, enabling you to be happy in the knowledge that your child is safe and stimulated throughout the day.

Set them up for lifelong learning and wellbeing.

Studies like the Abecedarian Project and the Perry Preschool Project have shown that high quality early learning can have a powerful and lasting positive influence on children, and even the communities where they live. Children take with them the benefits and confidence of this foundation throughout their entire lives. As a private early learning school focused on Core Education and Fine Arts, our proprietary curriculum is the most sophisticated of its kind in Canada and designed to educate and develop your child—to get them kindergarten ready, and life ready. We believe your child’s education is one of the best investments you can make.

School Closures

In case of inclement weather conditions or power outages which prevent CEFA Early Learning from providing service to families, the school’s Franchise Partner will make an early morning decision to close the school based on our School District.

Snow closures – In the event of heavy snowfall, our first priority is the safety of our families and staff. We expect to be open every day throughout the winter. However, if the public schools in your School District has made the decision to not open schools because the roads are deemed too unsafe for travel CEFA will also be closed.
